Following the success of Walking Netball, a film crew recorded the session on Tuesday 8th December at Dorcan Dome. This will be used in the England Netball promotional video for the launch of Walking Netball in early 2016. Mo Squires will also be trialling a daytime Walking Netball session at Haydon Centre on 27th January, and 3rd, 10th and 24th February 2016, 2.30-3.30pm.
The Uplands School project has had a huge, positive impact upon the students taking part and will be extended until Easter 2016. Swindon Vixens has also been awarded a £2,000 grant from Zurich Community Trust. This will pay for 12 months’ worth of sessions.
The new rules being introduced by the International Netball Federation next year, won’t be implemented until the start of the SDNA winter league 2016/17.
For a full list of the new rules, please see here
Junior league fixtures and results will soon be available on the SDNA website, www.swindon-netball.co.uk . This will be similar to other leagues.
